For consumer representatives

Training and Networking


We offer training programs to support emerging and current consumer and carer representatives, as well as health staff.

If you have any ideas on areas you would like more training please contact us


Networking with other consumer representatives is an important way to share experiences and ideas and to feel supported in the work you do. Health Consumers Queensland will be hosting networking events – the details are on our Training Calendar.

Our meetings for 2017 will be held  in the Brisbane Square Library. The Community Meeting Room is accessible, has a hearing loop, and is larger than our training room. We’re interested in your feedback on this new venue.
